Eldritch Scion Magus / / Primalist Bloodrager gestalt. Would this be any good?


Advice


So the idea is you’d take the Mad Magic feat, and replace all of your Bloodrager bloodline powers with rage powers, thus getting both all the bloodline powers and rage powers due to the gestalt. So basically a bigger, badder Bloodrager, who can use spell combat/spellstrike.

Would this be a good idea though?


Sure, sounds alright to me. What bloodline are you thinking?


Providing you're trying to specialise with the gestalt rather than to fill two or more roles, sure. And also providing you don't want skills at all; melee + Cha (not dumping Wis) can suck up the points in a point buy, and 4 base isn't huge.

Not sure yet, but I’m thinking of the Verdant bloodline. That fast healing looks good for early gameplay.

Yeah, just the one role. Basically just a better Bloodrager is what I’m going for.

I'm not a fan of verdant; the fast healing is too low to really help you, and its higher level powers require swift actions (which interferes with Eldritch Scion).

I'd recommend Aberrant, Destined, or Arcane.


If you're looking for tough, I feel like arcane or aberrant is the way to go.


I’m really liking the Destined Bloodrager bloodline now.

Also, I’ll be unable to replace the 1st level bloodline power with rage powers, because the Primalist archetype only works for 4th level and beyond powers.

So I’m down some rage powers, but it should otherwise be fine.


If you go Destined, take the FATE'S FAVOURED trait - it's your friend.
